    A pretty bad screw-up!

    That would almost be as bad as if a Linux Foundation head were using a Mac during a presentation!

    Judging by how quickly he did that it's not the first time...

    At least he had 2-step verification on his account.

    Nah tbf it would've probably looked a lot worse for Microsoft if the fella kept trying to use edge and was unable to actually finish his demo.

    Yeah.

    We've now got market share of ~3% (crazy high growth, thanks Windows 10), but he's still soldiering on with Apple's crap.

    This smells like an unrehearsed presentation.

    I use Opera, which causes far fewer problems and delays than either Chrome or Edge (or IE for that matter).

    It would be very interesting to see Microsoft presentations done on TOR
